I didn't know how to word the above question #1, so some example answers off the top of my head are:
- I don't want the server to always be on, but I still magically want to receive all messages

@gaab Hm, nice points. Intermittent connectivity would need to magically be supported (so Wifi, not mobile data, can be used).
Not sure how to think about the remote exploits bit.
@cj i think scuttlebutt is trying to do something like this…
